"Extraordinary! Most extraordinary! However, each house has its traditions, with which I would not for the world interfere. We have a prejudice in favor of washing. Go on, Beetle from 'jugurtha tamen' and, if you can, avoid the more flagrant forms of guessing." Prout's house was furious because Macrea's and Hartopp's houses joined King's to insult them.
Prout's house at the recent meeting in Number Twelve form-room, and the House hereby pass a vote of censure on the said study. That's all." "And she bled all down my shirt, too!" said Beetle. "An' I'm catty all over," said McTurk, "though I washed twice." "An' I nearly broke Beetle's brolly plantin' her where she would blossom!" The situation was beyond speech, but not laughter.
I have just named a very great man in his own field Prout. We all know his drawings, and love them: they have a peculiar character which no other architectural drawings ever possessed, and which no others can possess, because all Prout's subjects are being knocked down or restored.
So that it was not Rogers' "Italy" that sent the family off to the Alps that summer; but, fortunately for John, his father's eye was caught by the romantic architecture of Prout's "Sketches in Flanders and Germany," when it came out in April, 1853, and his mother proposed to make both of them happy in a tour on the Continent. The business-round was abandoned, but they could see Mr.
She had well-formed eyebrows which, had her portrait been painted, would probably have been done in Prout's or Vandyke brown.

Wade, eating and drinking spasmodically, told of his adventures in search of lemons. "Prout's emporium was quite out of them," he explained. "Prout said he had had some a few weeks ago, but they were sold. So I walked over to The Centre and got them there."
